1 Chapte The lectic Field II: Continuous Chage Distibutions 1 [M] A unifom line chage that has a linea chage density l equal to.5 nc/m is on the x axis between x and x 5. m. (a) What is its total chage? Find the electic field on the x axis at (b) x 6. m, (c) x 9. m, and (d) x 5 m. (e) stimate the electic field at x 5 m, using the appoximation that the chage is a point chage on the x axis at x.5 m, and compae you esult with the esult calculated in Pat (d). (To do this you will need to assume that the values given in this poblem statement ae valid to moe than two significant figues.) Is you appoximate esult geate o smalle than the exact esult? xplain you answe. Pictue the Poblem We can use the definition of λ to find the total chage of the line of chage and the expession fo the electic field on the axis of a finite line of chage to evaluate x at the given locations along the x axis. In Pat (d) we can apply Coulomb s law fo the electic field due to a point chage to appoximate the electic field at x 5 m. (a) Use the definition of linea chage density to expess in tems of λ: λl 18nC (.5nC/m)( 5.m) 17.5nC xpess the electic field on the axis of a finite line chage: x ( x ) x k ( x L) (b) ubstitute numeical values and evaluate x at x 6. m: x 9 ( ) ( N m /C )( 17.5nC) 6.m ( 6.m)( 6.m 5.m) 6 N/C (c) ubstitute numeical values and evaluate x at x 9. m: x 9 ( ) ( N m /C )( 17.5nC) 9.m ( 9.m)( 9.m 5.m) 4.4 N/C (d) ubstitute numeical values and evaluate x at x 5 m: x 9 ( ) ( N m /C )( 17.5nC) 5m ( 5m)( 5m 5.m).568 mn/c.6mn/c 89

This suggests that the line of chage is too long fo its field at a distance of 5 m to be modeled exactly as that due to a point chage. 17 [M] A ing that has adius a lies in the z plane with its cente at the oigin. The ing is unifomly chaged and has a total chage. Find z on the z axis at (a) z.a, (b) z.5a, (c) z.7a, (d) z a, and (e) z a. (f) Use you esults to plot z vesus z fo both positive and negative values of z. (Assume that these distances ae exact.) z Pictue the Poblem We can use z πkq 1 to find the electic z + a field at the given distances fom the cente of the chaged ing. (a) valuate z (.a): (.a) (b) valuate z (.5a): (.5a) (c) valuate z (.7a): (.7a) z z z k(.a) (.a) + a [ ] k.189 a k(.5a) (.5a) + a [ ] k.58 a k(.7a) (.7a) + a [ ] k.85 a (d) valuate z (a): ka z ( a) k.54 [ a + a ] a

The z coodinates ae in units of z/a and is in units of k/a..4. x z/a 18 A non-conducting disk of adius a lies in the z plane with its cente at the oigin. The disk is unifomly chaged and has a total chage. Find z on the z axis at (a) z.a, (b) z.5a, (c) z.7a, (d) z a, and (e) z a. (f) Use you esults to plot z vesus z fo both positive and negative values of z. (Assume that these distances ae exact.) z Pictue the Poblem We can use z π kq 1, whee a is the adius z + a of the disk, to find the electic field on the axis of a chaged disk. The electic field on the axis of a chaged disk of adius a is given by: z πk 1 1 z z z + a z + a (a) valuate z (.a): z (.a) 1.4.a (.a) + a

7 The lectic Field II: Continuous Chage Distibutions 95 7 A squae that has 1-cm-long edges is centeed on the x axis in a ρ egion whee thee exists a unifom electic field given by (. kn/c)iˆ. (a) What is the electic flux of this electic field though the suface of a squae if the nomal to the suface is in the +x diection? (b) What is the electic flux though the same squae suface if the nomal to the suface makes a 6º angle with the y axis and an angle of 9 with the z axis? Pictue the Poblem The definition of electic flux isφ ρ nˆda. We can apply this definition to find the electic flux though the squae in its two oientations. (a) Apply the definition of φ to find the flux of the field when the squae is paallel to the yz plane: φ (.kn/c) (.kn/c) (.kn/c)(.1m). N m iˆ ida ˆ da /C φ (. kn/c) i : (. kn/c) (b) Poceed as in (a) with ˆ n ˆ cos (. kn/c)(.1 m) 17 N m /C cos da cos da cos ρ 9 [M] An electic field is given by sign( x) ( N/C)iˆ, whee sign(x) equals 1 if x <, if x, and +1 if x >. A cylinde of length cm and adius 4. cm has its cente at the oigin and its axis along the x axis such that one end is at x +1 cm and the othe is at x 1 cm. (a) What is the electic flux though each end? (b) What is the electic flux though the cuved suface of the cylinde? (c) What is the electic flux though the entie closed suface? (d) What is the net chage the cylinde? Pictue the Poblem The field at both cicula faces of the cylinde is paallel to the outwad vecto nomal to the suface, so the flux is just A. Thee is no flux though the cuved suface because the nomal to that suface is pependicula to ρ. The net flux though the closed suface is elated to the net chage by Gauss s law.

8 96 Chapte (a) Use Gauss s law to calculate the flux though the ight cicula suface: Apply Gauss s law to the left cicula suface: φ φ ight left ρ ρ ight nˆ ight ( N/C) iˆ iˆ ( π )(.4 m) 1.5 N m left nˆ left A A /C ( N/C) iˆ ( iˆ )( π )(.4 m) 1.5 N m /C (b) Because the field lines ae paallel to the cuved suface of the cylinde: φ cuved (c) xpess and evaluate the net flux though the entie cylindical suface: φ net φ + φ + φ ight left 1.5 N m /C N m /C +.

9 The lectic Field II: Continuous Chage Distibutions 97 1 A point chage (q +. μc) is at the cente of an imaginay sphee that has a adius equal to.5 m. (a) Find the suface aea of the sphee. (b) Find the magnitude of the electic field at all points on the suface of the sphee. (c) What is the flux of the electic field though the suface of the sphee? (d) Would you answe to Pat (c) change if the point chage wee moved so that it was the sphee but not at its cente? (e) What is the flux of the electic field though the suface of an imaginay cube that has 1.-m-long edges and encloses the sphee? Pictue the Poblem We can apply Gauss s law to find the flux of the electic field though the suface of the sphee. (a) Use the fomula fo the suface aea of a sphee to obtain: A 4π 4π.14m (.5 m).14 m (b) Apply Coulomb s law to find : 4π 1 q 4π N/C 1.μC 1 ( C /N m )(.5 m) N/C (c) Apply Gauss s law to obtain: nda ˆ da 4 ( N/C)(.14 m ) φ ρ N m /C (d) No. The flux though the suface is independent of whee the chage is located the sphee. (e) Because the cube encloses the sphee, the flux though the suface of the sphee will also be the flux though the cube: φ cube N m /C 4 Because the fomulas fo Newton s law of gavity and fo Coulomb s law have the same invese-squae dependence on distance, a fomula analogous to the fomula fo Gauss s law can be found fo gavity. The gavitational field g ρ at a location is the foce pe unit mass on a test mass m placed at that location. Then, fo a point mass m at the oigin, the gavitational field g ρ at some position

10 98 Chapte ( ρ ) is g ρ ( Gm )ˆ. Compute the flux of the gavitational field though a spheical suface of adius R centeed at the oigin, and veify that the gavitational analog of Gauss s law is φ net 4πGm. Pictue the Poblem We ll define the flux of the gavitational field in a manne that is analogous to the definition of the flux of the electic field and then substitute fo the gavitational field and evaluate the integal ove the closed spheical suface. Define the gavitational flux as: φ g ρ nˆda g ubstitute fo g ρ and evaluate the integal to obtain: φ net Gm Gm Gm 4πGm ˆ nˆ da da ( 4π ) 4 Conside the solid conducting sphee and the concentic conducting spheical shell in Figue -41. The spheical shell has a chage 7. The solid sphee has a chage +. (a) How much chage is on the oute suface and how much chage is on the inne suface of the spheical shell? (b) uppose a metal wie is now connected between the solid sphee and the shell. Afte electostatic equilibium is e-established, how much chage is on the solid sphee and on each suface of the spheical shell? Does the electic field at the suface of the solid sphee change when the wie is connected? If so, in what way? (c) uppose we etun to the conditions in Pat (a), with + on the solid sphee and 7 on the spheical shell. We next connect the solid sphee to gound with a metal wie, and then disconnect it. Then how much total chage is on the solid sphee and on each suface of the spheical shell? Detemine the Concept The chages on a conducting sphee, in esponse to the epulsive Coulomb foces each expeiences, will sepaate until electostatic equilibium conditions exit. The use of a wie to connect the two sphees o to gound the oute sphee will cause additional edistibution of chage. (a) Because the oute sphee is conducting, the field in the thin shell must vanish. Theefoe,, unifomly distibuted, esides on the inne suface, and 5, unifomly distibuted, esides on the oute suface.

12 1 Chapte (b) Now thee is no chage on the inne suface and 5 on the oute suface of the spheical shell. The electic field just outside the suface of the inne sphee changes fom a finite value to zeo. (c) In this case, the 5 is dained off, leaving no chage on the oute suface and on the inne suface. The total chage on the oute sphee is then. 41 A non-conducting solid sphee of adius 1. cm has a unifom volume chage density. The magnitude of the electic field at. cm fom the sphee s cente is N/C. (a) What is the sphee s volume chage density? (b) Find the magnitude of the electic field at a distance of 5. cm fom the sphee s cente. Pictue the Poblem (a) We can use the definition of volume chage density, in conjunction with quation -18a, to find the sphee s volume chage density. (b) We can use quation -18b, in conjunction with ou esult fom Pat (a), to find the electic field at a distance of 5. cm fom the solid sphee s cente. (a) The solid sphee s volume chage density is the atio of its chage to its volume: (1) V ρ 4 πr Fo R, quation -18a gives the electic field at a distance fom the cente of the sphee: 1 () 4π olving fo yields: 4π ubstitute fo in equation (1) and simplify to obtain: 4π ρ 4 πr R ubstitute numeical values and evaluate ρ: 1 ( 1 C /N m )( N/C)(. cm) ρ. μc/m ( 1. cm) 1.997μC/m (b) Fo R, the electic field at a distance fom the cente of the sphee is given by: 1 () 4π R

(a) Find the total chage on the sphee. (b) Find the expessions fo the electic field and outside the chage distibution (c) ketch the magnitude of the electic field as a function of the distance fom the sphee s cente. Pictue the Poblem We can find the total chage on the sphee by expessing the chage dq in a spheical shell and integating this expession between and R. By symmety, the electic fields must be adial. To find the chaged sphee we choose a spheical Gaussian suface of adius < R. To find outside the chaged sphee we choose a spheical Gaussian suface of adius > R. On each of these sufaces, is constant. Gauss s law then elates to the total chage the suface.

This instument will consist of a long metal cylindical tube that has a long staight metal wie unning down its cental axis. The diamete of the wie is to be.5 mm and the diamete of the tube will be 4. cm. The tube is to be filled with a dilute gas in which electical dischage (beakdown) occus when the electic field eaches N/C. Detemine the maximum linea chage density on the wie if beakdown of the gas is not to happen. Assume that the tube and the wie ae infinitely long. Pictue the Poblem The electic field of a line chage of infinite length is given 1 λ by, whee is the distance fom the cente of the line of chage and π λ is the linea chage density of the wie.

24 11 Chapte 6 [M] A positive point chage of.5 μc is at the cente of a conducting spheical shell that has a net chage of zeo, an inne adius equal to 6 cm, and an oute adius equal to 9 cm.

Pictue the Poblem Let the inne and oute adii of the unchaged spheical conducting shell be R 1 and R and q epesent the positive point chage at the cente of the shell. The positive point chage at the cente will induce a negative chage on the inne suface of the shell and, because the shell is unchaged, an equal positive chage will be induced on its oute suface. To solve Pat (b), we can constuct a Gaussian suface in the shape of a sphee of adius with the same cente as the shell and apply Gauss s law to find the electic field as a function of the distance fom this point. In Pat (c) we can use a simila stategy with the additional chage placed on the shell.

Hence, fo 6 cm < < 9 cm: and ( 6 cm < < 9cm) Fo > 9 cm, the net chage the Gaussian suface is q and: kq 1 4 ( > 9cm) (. 1 N m /C) (c) Because in the conducto: q inne and inne.5μc.55 μc/m as befoe. xpess the elationship between the chages on the inne and oute sufaces of the spheical shell: q oute and q oute + q inne.5μc.5μ C - q 6.μC inne oute is now given by: oute 6.μC 4 π (.9m).59 μc/m Fo < R 1 6 cm, q and ( < 6 cm) is as it was in (a): Because the spheical shell is a conducto, a chage q will be induced on its inne suface.

The sphee and the shell ae both suounded by a second spheical shell that

27 The lectic Field II: Continuous Chage Distibutions 115 has an inne adius R 4 and an oute adius R 5. None of these thee objects initially have a net chage. Then, a negative chage is placed on the inne sphee and a positive chage + is placed on the outemost shell. (a) Afte the chages have eached equilibium, what will be the diection of the electic field between the inne sphee and the middle shell? (b) What will be the chage on the inne suface of the middle shell? (c) What will be the chage on the oute suface of the middle shell? (d) What will be the chage on the inne suface of the outemost shell? (e) What will be the chage on the oute suface of the outemost shell? (f) Plot as a function of fo all values of. Detemine the Concept We can detemine the diection of the electic field between sphees I and II by imagining a test chage placed between the sphees and detemining the diection of the foce acting on it. We can detemine the amount and sign of the chage on each sphee by ealizing that the chage on a given suface induces a chage of the same magnitude but opposite sign on the next suface of lage adius. (a) The chage placed on sphee III has no beaing on the electic field between sphees I and II. The field in this egion will be in the diection of the foce exeted on a test chage placed between the sphees. Because the chage at the cente is negative, the field will point towad the cente. (b) The chage on sphee I ( ) will induce a chage of the same magnitude but opposite sign on sphee II: + (c) The induction of chage + on the inne suface of sphee II will leave its oute suface with a chage of the same magnitude but opposite sign: (d) The pesence of chage on the oute suface of sphee II will induce a chage of the same magnitude but opposite sign on the inne suface of sphee III: + (e) The pesence of chage + on the inne suface of sphee III will leave the oute suface of sphee III neutal:
